A very good first edition copy, with original dust jacket, of this re-examination of a violent episode in the history of Mormon settlement in Utah.  The author, a member of the Mormon church, aims to shine the light of factual account on the Mountain Meadows Massacre (1857), understanding it as an example of war hysteria.

Support for research and writing was provided by a Rockefeller Foundation grant fellowship for the study of Southwestern history.

Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
